      You’d have taken that though Keith wouldn’t you?

      I mean - given the choice -  you’d suffer the loss of the big ugly boy in exchange for us missing Mane.........

      Doesn't make it right Scotia. Kante also out for the Chavs through international break.

      Agreed Keith.

      I wasn’t being entirely facetious - there’s not many at all in Prem that can step in for Sadio.

      The big fella - bless him - has his virtues (I guess) but is a little more conventional to replace......height aside.

      I guess 3 main options for replacement - in no order of preference

      1. Ox for Sadio, straight up (seems least likely)

      2. Phil back to the front three with Mo and Bobby, then Gini, Emre and Jordan in midfield

      3. Sturridge with Bobby and Mo up front, and I guess that would put....??? at center forward. Bobby???

      It's a big loss - really need some players to step up and show leadership where it hasn't been on display much this season.

      Gomez can defend better from set pieces and is stronger defensively than TAA.

      Sturridge would be lucky to make the bench after his display against Newcastle. No brainer that Firmino starts with his pressing aswel as being better.

      I thought Gomez was woeful against the toons.

      Don't fancy us one bit. Unlike the other top sides Maureen won't be dumb enough to come out and try and play, he'll spoil the game, sit deep, keep it very tight and wait for our ludicrous defence to fu.c...k it up at some stage. Losing Mane is a massive blow. I guess we might actually get to see what Ox can do but I suspect Coutinho will be the one to step into that inside left spot and we'll play it safe and boring in the middle of the park.

      I would start Milner at right back. Gomez has looked very poor, he has spent too much time in the weights room for me, he looks slow on the turn and positionally he isn't up to scratch. TAA is a prospect but he would be better served playing further up the pitch where his defensive frailties can be protected. Milner played a whole season at left back and for me, he is our best option on the right until Clyne gets himself fit.

      I know it's a massive step up but would like to see harry Wilson involved in the squad in the next few weeks, offers something different and is high in confidence,  if isn't involved with the hectic schedule coming up then he probably never will. Not saying starting games but deserves a chance

      My son has just started playing competitive football, he is 7.

      His game is at 11 so I had to choose between him or going the match. I chose him and I've given my ticket up.

      If he doesn't score a hat trick he will be grounded.

      I'd have made the same decision.

      My team are under-10's. I love coaching them and watching them play but the friendly is against a team we battered 9-0 at the start of the season when 3 of our lads were on holiday so I'm really not sure how it benefits anybody. Man City are having a coaching day on Saturday too at the place we usually train at so they were really looking forward to going to that, they were gutted when I told them they wouldn't be able to go.

      Since Mane's red card suspension he's not been the same player, hasn't settled back in at all, in fact he's been very selfish on the ball and piss poor If you want my opinion.
      Our formation with Mane and Salah as the two wingers, apart from the Arsenal game, just isn't working for me neither.
      Maybe that was because, in that game, Arsenal played with a back three which allowed them both the space.
      It didn't work in the Burnley or Newcastle games or in both European games lets face it..

      So, with Mane out it really is time for a change.
      Woodburns in the squad isn't he?
      Put Robertson up against Valencia, that'll be interesting.
      Oh, and we bought a player for £40 million quid recently didn't we?..play him !
      As Fatkopite10 mentioned give Wilson a go..
      There's no better bapitism of fire than a home game against the Mancs  ;D

      Anything could happen in this game and it invariably will.
      The main battle will be in midfield ; Matip/Can/Herrera/Henderson/Mata/Coutinho, win that and you win the game!

      Oh and if and when Jürgen brings his subs on he needs to do it earlier instead of putting Solanke or Sturridge on with 4 minutes to go.

      I want us to play with a 4..2..3..1 formation especially with Sadio out. Can and Hendo in midfield and keep it solid and provide as much protection for the back four as they can. Phil on the left, Salah on the right with Bobby behind Danny. It might be a bit risky changing our shape before a massive game but it might through up a few surprises for Jose.

      Mane was really poor in the last match, but we'll still miss him, think he'd have raised his game for this.

      Like someone said, we bought a guy for 40mill for exactly this type of situation - problem is, he's looked like a donkey so far ... we signed f**k all new bodies, so we really need the ones we brought in (this one for big money) to get the f**king finger out sharpish.

      They are much improved, though maybe haven't had a tough test. Pity our form hasn't been better. Thank f**k Coutinho should play afaik. We generally show up against the better sides, but hoping more than expecting a good result.
      Looking forward to the game though, hope the fans make it a great atmosphere :)

      Hate to say it but this could be a season defining game already. Without Mane and the way we’ve been struggling to score, if we lose here it’s not going to get any easier for Klopp and the boys.

      Mané's injury is not a disaster since it's "just" 6 weeks and he wasn't playing lights out recently. If someone would offer me a draw today I'd take it for we are fragile and ManU is hot.

      F**k that hedging sh*t right off.

      I'd roll the dice and play for 3pts.

      Atmosphere alone in this match should raise the lads game if nothing else. We need something like that right now because we haven't found that within ourselves, recently  Good game to turn things around IMO.

      Can't believe I am thinking this but the injury to Elbows may be a blessing in disguise for our defence.

      No doubt Maureen will bring his expensive new Bus to be parked firmly at Anfield. We will have to be wary of them on the counter, need Hendo to be more disciplined and provide protection to the back 4.

      I would have TAA in for Gomez as he is quicker and against the likes of Rashfird and Martial will be needed.

      Coutinho moves into the front 3 for me and time for Ox to show what he is worth.

      Will be close and nervy as these games usually are but we are at Anfield and should be beating these.

      I wasn't looking forward to this match even without all the issues as per below.

      Firstly, we are sh*te after international breaks.  :mad:
      Secondly, our two Brazilians will be tired after the long flight and are not normally at their best after international break.
      Thirdly, Mo Salah will be in a celebratory mood and I wonder how much will be on the ball. I hope he though.
      Fourthly, Sadio Mane. Well, what else can I say.

      So, I am very pessimistic about this one. :(

      We will win 2-1.  :D
